Secondary Math Resources
A compilation of a few of the thousands of available tools
This podcast is a collection of tricks and tips that help you to quickly use mental math to find solutions to problems ranging from division and multiplication to squaring and factoring.
A Brief History of Mathematics
This podcast delves into the background and history of mathematics as we know it today, studying famous mathematicians like Newton and Euler.
Brainingcamp brings you a resource that offers lessons, practice problems and real world applications of mathematics.
Host Jason Marshall explains math terms and principles in this podcast, hoping to simplify the math world for even the most anti-math learners.
This podcast is a more relaxed mathematical discussion that occurs each week. The content is based upon user submitted questions, comments and suggestions.
Why Math Instruction is Unnecessary
Math teacher John Bennett speaks at TEDx Manhattan Beach on why he thinks that requiring math at the secondary level is something he advises against. Very interesting at the least.

The Euclidean Algorithm
This is a brief description of how to use Euclid's methods to find the greatest common divisor of two numbers. Could be helpful when first introducing the subject.
The Euclidean Algorithm (GCD or GCF)
Math should be fun! This video is bound to get a laugh out of your students when you explain to them the Archimedes Principle that helps us define volume

A Review of Precalculus
This video can be used as a day one refresher for your Calculus students or as a self-check when you think you need a review yourself!
Calculus I - Lecture 01 - A Review of Pre-Calculus
Multiplication of two and three digit numbers can be difficult for some. The methods presented in this video can simplify things for those who need a visual representation.
That Tutor Guy
Math teachers just do not have enough time to perfectly teach each and every student. For those students who need a little extra help at home (because we all know their parents are unlikely to help them) this website is great!
How often have you had to teach the same thing to 5 or more students after school, before school or during your study hall? Chirbit is an audio recording tool that could cut that to one lesson every time. Students who are absent or don't quite follow your lesson in class can listen to this lesson at home and hopefully catch up.
